Follow Me - Aircraft Marshallers is a group of professional aircraft marshallers & handling agents who provide Aircraft Marshalling & Oversight of Airside Operations Areas for special aviation events, Fly-Ins, Air Shows & Open Days . More used as Ground Handling Agents to marshalling or towing Hawkers, Falcons, Gulfstreams, Boeing Business Jets & helicopters of every size, into tight spaces in all weather conditions, they are trained to international safety standards.
It's Safety First Every Time ! Our marshallers have been trained to international standards at their base FBOs, under the NATA Safety 1st - Professional Line Service Training (PLST) program operated by the National Air Transport Association or other approved safety training systems which are compliant with Irish Aviation Authority Ramp Training Regulations, IATA & ICAO. Apart from aircraft marshalling PLST training covers aircraft ground servicing, fuel servicing, towing procedures, fuel farm management, fire safety, emergency procedures & aviation security with bi-annual recurrent training in place.
The Basic Function of an Aircraft Marshaller is to control movement of aircraft prior to and after flight. This function is performed mainly on the ramp at an airport, occasionally on a taxiway, or at a hanger. We do this before, during and after the waiver period at airshows, fly-ins & static shows. This function is accomplished using approved marshalling hand signals exercising due care and ensuring that the movement area is clear of obstacles, FOD, vehicular and pedestrian traffic. We do this because it needs to be done & we want to do it! The primary motto of "Follow Me-Aircraft Marshallers" is “Safety First Every Time.”
